You can check your blood pressure, weight and height at any time using our Interactive Patient Pod. This is located in reception and is available whenever reception is open. High blood pressure (hypertension) if undetected and not treated causes heart attacks, strokes and kidney damage. It is easily treatable once detected so we encourage patients to monitor their blood pressure. If you monitor your blood pressure at home please let us know the results annually either by e-mail or by letter. If your results are abnormal you will be contacted to arrange an appointment.
